Holidays and mini breaks have the perfect way of making us feel happy and uplifted and whilst this may have a lot to do with warm weather and historic culture it also has a great deal to do with the atmosphere of our accommodation. If your anything like me, there is nothing more satisfying than waking up in a luxurious and sophisticated setting that oozes classic elegance and style.
You can recreate the glamour and opulence of a boutique hotel bedroom with these simple steps and ideas. Using items that are readily available on the high street you can create a sleek and luxurious sleeping area that will feel like a high class getaway, everyday.
Boutique hotels tend to stick to neutral yet tonal colour schemes that can be used alone or with more bolder colour options for a luxurious contemporary feel. Soft beige, pebble grey and mocha tones work really well in creating a sleek yet relaxed setting that is both warm and uplifting in appearance. Monochrome colour schemes also work extremely well in hotel style bedroom areas as they provide a fashionable balance of feminine and masculine tones that give a contrasting yet complimentary feel to the room. Crisp white gives an illuminating backdrop to a bedroom setting however be sure to partner it with bold or earthy colour tones to avoid your bedroom feeling cold or stark.
The bed is the first item we see when we enter a hotel room for the first time and is obviously the most important aspect when it comes to comfort and a good nights sleep. Depending on the look of your hotel style bedroom there are several avenues to explore whe it comes to choosing the right bed. For contemporary chic interiors with an earthy colour palette (right) opt for a leather or Upholstered bed frame in complimentary tones and fabrics. If you prefer a more period interior setting then choose a plain Hardwood Bed frame in a sleigh style design for a grand and eye-catching appeal. For a more glamorous and truly ’boutique’ feel then choose a fabulous French Carved Bed Frame and where possible go all out with a King or Super King sized frame for added visual impact.
Cleverly positioned light fittings and lamps will make a huge impact on small or large bedroom interiors and will provide that recognisable luxury hotel feel within your chosen space. Classic chandeliers look fabulously glamorous in both modern and classic boutique interiors and whilst you may not be able to accommodate one on the same scale as the Beverly Wilshire (left) there are many eye-catching French and Venetian designs available on the high street that will add a splash of period glamour to your bedroom area. Don’t forget to purchase some complimentary bedside lamps for a stylish spot of light bedtime reading .
When it comes to bedroom furniture both home and away, each item should provide a perfect balance of eye-catching style and functional practicality. Wardrobes, chests of drawers and bedsides should compliment your surroundings and provide plentiful storage space for all of your items. Mirrored items, French designs (such as the armoire on the right) and regal style mahogany frames work extremely well in boutique style settings and will create a stunning focal point within your room. Make sure you include a sumptuously stylish dressing table to accentuate the glamour and class of hotel style living.
No hotel room would be complete without a stunning and relaxing choice of seating that is perfect for slipping off your shoes after a long and busy day, or sitting at your dressing table for a much needed pamper session. You can opt for classic armchair designs for the ultimate in comfort and ergonomic design. Wood or metal exposed frames look fabulous when partnered with sleek, soft fabrics in neutral tones that will add an opulent feel to your interior space. Occasional chairs look amazing nestled in the corner of your bedroom area and can be a glamorous addition to both bold or minimal colour schemes. French painted bedroom chairs can be purchased in a range of chic and flamboyant colours that will add a splash of boutique opulence to any bedroom area.
